Two Knox residents were arrested overnight Friday after a traffic stop in the area of Rose Road and Lincoln Highway in Marshall County.

Marshall County Police say a K9 searched the 2006 Kia passenger vehicle and indicated the presence of narcotics. Officers reportedly found two used syringes under the passenger seat, plus 3.5 grams of heroin hidden underneath the floor carpeting on the driver’s side. Other items of drug paraphernalia were also allegedly collected.

Joseph T. Bihlmayer, 32, was booked into the Marshall County Jail on preliminary charges of unlawful possession of syringes and two active Starke County warrants. Once at the jail, officers allegedly found him in possession of methamphetamine and that charge was included. The driver, Crystal Williams, 33, was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of heroin, unlawful possession of syringes, and possession of a legend drug without a prescription.

Both remain in the Marshall County Jail on a cash bond of $3,005.
